Please note

The interactive stories and calculators are embedded in the website for easy access but be aware that they are intended to be delivered as part of the whole unit, not as a standalone activity. They are designed as a starting point and a shared activity to engage the class and act as a springboard for the lessons. To ensure that children get the best out of the resource it is advised that you download and plan the whole unit, taking time to see how the elements fit together before you begin.
